Rainy day in Edinburgh

Well.. it just had to be, hadn't it?? Today it was raining ... nawh, even worse ... it was BUCKETING down!!!

Actually wanted to have a lazy day but my mum wanted to do the most of her trip so decided to go up town - and DH kinda volunteered us both to come with her! :)

We went to Subway for lunch (yummy sandwiches - always one of our favourite places to go for a quick but nice lunch!) and then off to the Royal and National Museum. About 1 hour on the top floor at the Royal Museum (nice Chinese, Japanese and Middle Eastern art & artefacts), then we went over to the new "Sporting Scotland" part of the National Museum (nothing about the Claymores of course ... :( ) and back to the Royal Museum to see/hear the Millennium Clock strike 4pm! :) It's a beatitul clock - in a way ... lots of gory things but then it makes sense. I only read the background of it afterwards though.

Then we went back to the Rooftop Terrace of the National Museum - what a VIEW!!! Well... it would have been if it wouldn't have been raining and being foggy ... :) Have to get back there when it's nice weather!!

We then went back via Lidl and I made my pumpkin soup ... used 3 small pumpkins which I used also as soup bowls (thank you Carol Adamson in Akron for that idea!!!). Did turn out nicely, as well as the "homemade" (i.e. from a mix) garlic/rosemary bread (Foccacia from Tesco's). Dinner was really totally yummy! :)
